NBA insider Brian Windhorst has revealed that Cleveland Cavaliers’ star Donovan Mitchell wields significant influence within the team, surpassing even that of LeBron James with the Los Angeles Lakers.

According to Windhorst, Mitchell’s impact within the Cavaliers organization rivals the influence LeBron holds with the Lakers, and in some aspects, it may even be stronger.

“What Donovan has with the Cavs is what LeBron has with the Lakers, in fact it might even be stronger,” Windhorst said on ESPN Cleveland.

While the Cavaliers are eager to retain Mitchell’s services, the All-Star guard holds considerable power over his future, with a player option in his contract for the season after the upcoming one.

Should Mitchell opt not to sign an extension with the Cavaliers during this offseason, Cleveland could explore trade options to avoid the risk of losing him for nothing next summer.
